Finishing

  1. Fill any nail holes, cracks, crevices, or knotholes with wood filler, and sand the entire cupboard.
  2. Paint or stain the cupboard the color of your choice.

Does anyone ever have enough kitchen cabinets? Here is one you can build for your kitchen with just a modest knowledge of woodworking techniques. It contains two good-sized drawers above, extra storage space below, and a wooden counter top. Place it against a wall, or use it as a free-standing island. The finished cabinet is 25 inches deep, 37 inches wide, and 37-1/2 inches tall.

This project is a little more advanced than many of the others and requires you to make several dadoes. You can avoid some of the dadoes, by purchasing pre-made cabinet doors and drawer fronts. Step-by-step instructions for the doors and drawer fronts are included if you want to make them yourself.
